Lucy is a textile artist.
Lucy’s practice explores the concept of visible repair within the context of fast fashion, unpicking the industry’s influence over the relationship we have with our clothes. Working with discarded denim, scrap, donated and deadstock fabrics, a bold design aesthetic and striking colour palette, she combines sashiko-style embroidery with layering to create patches, embellishment and adornment. Lucy’s projects seek to extend the lifespan and desirability of wearable clothing, creating a reinvigorated and longer-term relationship between garment and wearer.
